Booked direct with hotel after going on different websites it was cheaper to book direct. Still in the hotel this is our last night of a 3 night stay with breakfast. Arrived a little after 3pm and was promptly checked in by manager Peter who was very polite. Our room on the first floor was very clean and had all we could ask for tea,coffee,milk,sugars, bottled water, lovely clean towels and toiletries, the bathroom was very clean, brilliant shower powerful and plenty of hot water. Breakfast is very very good everything you could ask for and if it was not just had to ask excellent. Staff in restaurant are very polite and very helpful. On our second day our heating in our room was cold after reporting this to reception as we were going out on our return we spoke with the lady on the desk at the time and she told us her manager Peter had gone up to sort it for us and he had. We ate in the restaurant one evening (only one as we had been meeting up with friends other nights) excellent menu they had a £23 menu choice of 3 starters 3 mains and 3 desserts which we had really lovely food and again excellent service. This is our 3rd stay at the Future inn Cardiff and it will not be our last!!! Oh I have to say a big thank you to Peter and the reception team for all the extra milks and teas they provided me with for my partner he loves his tea Thank you Peter and everyone at the Future inn Cardiff.

Room was very big and very clean, bar was really great and location was great as well. A little bit outside of the city Center so it was really calm but very easy to reach with Uber. Staff was really friendly. However, the Night Manager Mohammed was extraordinary in his service. He checked us in the night we arrived and was always helpful when we asked him to do us some favours. Even in difficult situations that occurred during the night (not to us but we witnessed) he acted extremely professional. I believe that every Hotel that employs someone like Mohammed can be sure that operations will run smoothly during the night. Normally I would have rated 4/5 because it was a great hotel but night manger Mohammed made this stay 5/5. Thank you very much for having us.

We have just stayed for one night here after enjoying an evening at the Millenium Centre. We were really pleased with our experience, it is the first time at this hotel. Checking in was quick and met with a pleasant response. Our room on the 6th floor, was excellent, spacious, with free water and tea and coffee making tray. Good toiletries in the bathroom. Very pleased with the room. Had a lovely meal in the restaurant, all food was first class, and nice to have a Welsh connection. A good night's sleep followed by again a lovely breakfast, good choice of food. All together a really good experience, would definitely recommend. Thank You.

Before leaving this review. I did try and contact futures inn Cardiff. But to no avail. Accommodation was just bearable. Very dated. Missing many promised items. Very little sleep.. room was very noisy due to having windows open; the ac was pumping out heat. Food in the evening not great; But breakfast next morning was a1.. Stick to premier inn..

We stayed in Cardiff for NYE. Hotel is next door to a leisure complex with restaurants, bowling and a cinema. As our room was not yet ready at 2pm, we were able to kill time at the Red Dragon leisure complex. We were checked in by the delightful Peter who goes out of his way to ensure that his guests are happy. Future Inn as a name is a bit misleading as it gives the impression that the hotel is basic, which it is not. We booked a suite which was very spacious and perfect for a family. The bed was extremely cosy and comfortable. New Year’s Eve family party was very good value and we had fun dancing to our song requests. The party buffet had something for everyone to eat. There was a good selection at breakfast too. My family really enjoyed their stay and the experience and we all would like to recognise Peter for his exceptional customer service.

3 day break including a New Year eve function, of dinner and entertainment. The event had a hot buffet dinner, which covered something for everyone. Well organised, with Peter, the manager, even sorting the evening for extremely late bookings. Friendly, helpful staff. The hotel is clean and well presented, just far enough from the centre to have quiet surroundings. Restaurant breakfast has megga choice, delicious and plentiful. PLUD a free car park at the hotel.
